(KHOU Houston)   Since the shot they created to celebrate every time the Texans score a touchdown isn't getting poured much lately, Houston bar is considering creating a special drink served every time Matt Schaub is intercepted   (khou.com) divider line 18

Seriously...T.J. Yates. Put him in.

That Schaub lad has a problem.  My guess is either torn meniscus or torn labrum.  His throwing mechanics be all f*cked up.

I hear they're going to name it "The Jake".

Yates isnt the answer. Nobody is beating Denver in the AFC this season so you might as well start getting Keenum in the game as I think he is the Texans best shot down the road.


Not a Texans fan, just my observation.

Yea I've been thinking the same thing watching the last couple games.  His passes just seem to "float".  He can't throw bullets like Brady or Peyton.

Why does everyone think Yates isn't the answer?  Maybe he's not, but you know what else isn't the answer?  Leaving Private Pyle out there to throw more TAINTs.

I am a Texans fan, and if everyone's honest with themselves, really this season is done and really the window is closed for a LONG time.  Luck is going to dominate the AFC South, and if Locker comes back healthy, I think the Titans can legitimately challenge in the division as well.  What do the Texans have exactly?  We have the football equivalent of Brad Lidge out there throwing to the other team.  We have a great running back who's admittedly pushing closer to 30, a HOF WR who's got about two more good years left...and then what?

Again, if Yates isn't the answer, fine, but the status quo is unacceptable.  And if Yates isn't the answer, then what exactly is the question?

Bad analogy, at one times lidge was among the best closers in baseball, Schaub was never a top tier QB.  Lidge also became good again once he left clutch city, but somehow I doubt that will happen with Schaub.

We have a great running back who's admittedly pushing closer to 30, a HOF WR who's got about two more good years left...and then what?

JJ Watt?  Daniels? Graham? Cushing? Tate? Best punter in the league maybe?  Hopkins will be good.  We have plenty of talent on the team, the problem is this was our best chance to capitalize before it gets too expensive to keep what we want.

Yates is worse than Schaub and Keenum is not going to be a successful QB, not many good options.

I get the impression from the local sports talk radio that most in Houston would indeed prefer Keenum. We've all seen what Yates can do. Servicable "game manager," strong arm, but prone to the killer mistake - See Ed Reed in last year's playoffs. Keenum on the other hand is smaller, weaker arm, but is viewed as
more mobile that either Shaub or Yates and potentially more able to make plays out of nothing.

In either case, what's the down-side w/ sitting Schaub? The texans are already throwing picks every game.

Schaub is the best QB the Texans have ever had.  Good players sometimes have rough stretches, but some fans insist that a good player's good years need to be forgotten as soon as he struggles for a couple of games.  I don't understand this.

Keenum is absolute garbage, and Yates isn't as good as Schaub, as everyone who remembers 2011 already knows.  Schaub has made some mistakes this year, but most years he doesn't make many.  He's roughly as good as Joe Flacco.

It's also worth noting that the Texans' schedule has been murderous so far this year.  The road game in San Diego is probably the easiest they've faced.  It's possible that everyone will forget anything was ever wrong by December.

Also, fark the Colts for their suck-for-Luck year.

Schaub's time is done. The only people who don't realize this are the people with the authority to change who lines up behind the center. Those same people will be looking for work after the Texans end this season at 5-11.

Enver is one hurt Manning neck away from  a 5-11 season

He was also a third string rookie that year going against two of the greatest defenders of all time.  And they damned near won that game, BTW.

At this point, I'd much rather see Yates and what he can do now that he's the established backup rather than Schaub feed the opposition a free six points week in and week out.

Yeah, everyone kept waiting for that to happen last season and it never did.  I'm not saying it won'thappen, any given sunday and all that, but I wouldn't count on an injury stopping the Broncos offense this season.

I also think they have enough talent to win at least a few games without Manning.  I mean even with Brock (can't remember how to spell his last name and don't feel like looking it up) at QB they should still be able to beat the Jags.  But yeah, probably a 6-10 season without Manning.

NetOwl: Also, fark the Colts for their suck-for-Luck year.


Yeah, keep beating that dead horse till it makes you feel better.  There's absolutely no way that the 2011 Colts were unprepared to replace one of the greatest players of our generation at the most important position on the team.  They obviously decided to eschew over a decade of winning seasons to tank that season.  It couldn't possibly be that Peyton Manning really was the only thing between an aging Colts team and total failure.

If schaub is hurt (which I think he is) then the texans need to move in a direction that will give them a chance to win games while buying him time to get healthy

They don't have 2-3 years to break in a new quarterback while aging their roster that is built to win now

Schaub is missing receivers by plus or minus 5 yards which he wasn't doing in Atlanta when he was healthy or the last 2 years in Houston

Houston is a power run team with a good outside deep threat. If Yates doesn't have the arm to run that then Houston needs to find someone before the coach loses his job in 6-8 more games
